Subject: CRD : The Tower - Chris de Burgh

I strum the intro something like this : (all downward strums except
the third chord which is strummed upward). I don't know what chord it is.
As you can see, I'm pretty hopeless at tabulature but I'm sure if you hear 
the song, you can figure what the tab below means! 
--2-2-3---2-2-3- --3-3-3---3-3-3- --2-2-2---2-2-2- ---------------- ---------------- ----------------
There is also another chord which is like a D so I'll call it D*.It is played by : ---2--- ---2--- ---2--- ------- ------- -------
---------------------------It starts here--------------------------------- The Tower - Chris de Burgh D D* A great lord came walking through the forest one morning G D With a weapon in his hand D* Rich was his castle, he lacked for nothing G A Killing was his plan Bm F#m When a white bird flew by, she fell from the sky G D Em A D Nothing was found, only blood on the ground, she was gone D D* G D Cursing his fortune, he turned to the forest to kill once again D* G A Standing before him was a lovely young woman with her head hung in pain Bm F#m When he saw her, his eyes were filled with desire G D Em A He said "I must have her, she must be mine D G A She will be mine" D D* He offered her silver, he offered her gold G D But she threw it on the ground D* He fell to his knees and he begged her, "Oh please G D Come with me, what you wish will be found" Bm F#m She said, "Sir, I'll go if you'll put up your bow G D Em A Spare these creatures, leave them in peace F# You have no need Em A D But her words were lost in the wind G D A His eyes were fixed on a queen Bm F#M Em A D And all he saw was a woman but all she was, was a dream Bm F#m G Bm F#m Em A Da-ah Bm F#m Em A D All he saw was a woman and all she was, was a dream Other verses : He took her and bound her with ropes tied around her To his castle he did ride In the wood was a bower where stood an an old tower And he threw her deep inside And the birds left the sky and a terrible cry Brought thunder and lightning, rain falling down Tears on the ground All through the days on her face he would gaze For she was lovely as the spring No words would she speaketh but leave them in peace And some sad lament she would sing One day by the door, through the window he saw A single white feather lying on the floor She was there no more Now that great lord is dying, his cold heart is crying For the love of a girl For many an hour he has wept on the tower For she meant more than the world One day in the sky a white bird flew by He lifted his hands, he cried out in pain Come back again But his words were lost in the wind His castle was built upon sand All he saw was her memory And all he yearned was her hand Da aa All she was, was a memory And all he yearned was her hand ------------------------It ends here------------------------------ Any comments/corrections appreciated. I'd also like to know the name of the chord D*. Thanks
